This is cool!

A few years ago I saw a ferry in Michigan for sale and told my wife that I thought it would be cool to tour the rivers of our great county while also having the luxury of our RV. She wasn't too thrilled with the idea.

Last night I found this:

Amphibious RV - Recreational Vehicles - RollerBoat

I think this would be a blast but my wife still questions my sanity. At least she could see that there were other great minds out there

Cool

Certainly different. I don't know if I'd want to trust this kind of system in choppy/wavy water however.

Yea, that's a hoot. Very interesting but I would listen to your wife. Like mentioned before on the tire subject,"Ginny is a wise lady'"

I'd have to get a parrot to sit on my dash.

At least with one of these the roads would be smoother, you could stop without looking for a rest area and no toll roads.

Ditto. Also, the thought of trying to dock it in a current or crosswind is terrifying. But is a cool concept.

They would have to incorporate some electric bow and stern thrusters to help control the docking

They made a boat for the motor homes, maybe someone can come up with a submarine to haul them too!

I thought the same thing watching the video, however it is still neat and almost worth becoming self insured.

I now can see why insurance companies are dropping full replacement coverage.

Having owned a pretty good sized sailboat, I can assure you that there is more to docking and maneuvering this baby than meets the eye. Others have said a bow and stern-thruster would be mandatory, and even a moderate breeze would make this simple operation of docking at a boat ramp a white knuckle experience. And I guess that you can trailer it behind the motorhome when you are on regular pavement?

Cute idea for a very calm day on a body of water that does not permit boats to leave any wake more than a few inches and you own property on the lake and have your own ramp......

Your wife is the person that you need to be paying attention to at this point.....
